Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

NSFW: Too much sexytime. (But not really)

Handsome Cycles and Twin Six are separated by only a mile or two in Minneapolis—I rode my bike between the two shops during my last visit to Minneapolis in fact. For 2011 the two companies have joined forces for a custom run of the Speedy Devil, a $500 frameset with graphics by Twin Six. Single speed or geared, with fender and rack mounts all over.

Also worth note is the Handsome XOXO, an exact replica of the legendary Bridgestone XO-1 featuring Reynolds 631 tubes, 26″ wheels and a 1″ threaded steerer, along with that classic orange paint. The frameset should go for about $640.

Stolen from: http://urbanvelo.org/handsome-cycles...#comment-27107

I think its gorgeous and If i can save up some cash I might be buying it. My blacked out langster stuff would look dank.

If I had money to be spending on brand new bikes (I don't have money to spend on old rusty bikes!) I would be hella excited for the XOXO.
